Terms of Use and Service

Updated September 23, 2020

Introduction

Job Pairing is a job sharing platform for individuals, recruiters and employers. It provides services for matching professionals with other professionals, referred to as “job mates”, who want to share a job. It also provides services to match a pair of job mates with recruiters and employers. www.jobpairing.com is a site operated by Job Pairing LLC. This agreement is between you and Job Pairing LLC.

Our mission is to match professionals with other professionals with similar and/or complementary skills so they can pair up to share a job as well as match pairs of job mates with recruiters and employers. Central to this mission is our commitment to be transparent about the data we collect about you, how it is used and with whom it is shared.

Contract

These terms and conditions (the "Terms of Use” and “Terms of Service") apply to Job Pairing services and web site (www.jobpairing.com) which is owned and operated by Job Pairing LLC. When you use our web site and Services, you agree to all of these terms. Your use of our Services is also subject to our Cookie Policy and our Privacy Policy, which cover how we collect, use, share, and store your personal information.

Job Pairing reserves the right to modify this Agreement or its policies relating to the Services at any time, effective upon posting of an updated version of this Agreement on its website. You should regularly review this Agreement, as your continued use of the Services after any such changes constitutes your agreement to such changes.

You agree that by clicking or tapping on “Join”, “Sign Up”, “Register”, “Get Started”, or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Job Pairing LLC (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services.

You are entering into this Contract with Job Pairing LLC (also referred to as “we”, “us” and “job pairing”) which will be the controller of your personal data provided to, or collected by or for, or processed in connection with our Services, delivered through www.jobpairing.com.

Members and Visitors

When you register and join the Job Pairing Service, you become a “Member” (either job seekers or employers and recruiters). If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features or sections of our website as a “Visitor.”

Services

This Contract applies to www.jobpairing.com and services that are offered by Job Pairing under this Contract (“Services”). This Contract applies to both Members (either job seekers or employers and recruiters) and Visitors. As a Visitor or Member of our Services, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data is subject to our Cookie Policy and our Privacy Policy, and updates.

Change

We may modify this Contract, our Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy from time to time. If we make material changes to it, we will provide you notice through our Services, or by other means, to provide you the opportunity to review the changes. We agree that changes cannot be retroactive. If you disagree with or object to any changes, you may close your account (by clicking on your profile picture on your dashboard and selecting close account option). Your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to these terms means that you are consenting to the updated terms.

Note:

Select features will only be available in our Premium offering. Until then, enjoy exploring them for free.

Service Eligibility

Here are some promises that you make to us in this Contract:

  • You’re eligible to enter into this Contract and you are at least our “Minimum Age” (described below).
  • The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 16.
  • To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” or older; (2) you will only have one Job Pairing account, which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by Job Pairing from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16.

“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Job Pairing to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.

If you do not meet these qualifications to use the Services, you may not use the Services.

Your Account

You will keep your user identification and password a secret. You will not share an account with anyone else and will follow our rules and the law. If you know or suspect that anyone other than you knows your user identification or password, you must promptly notify us at support@jobpairing.com. Members are account holders. You agree that you are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse. We have the right to disable your account (your user identification and password) at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms of use.

Your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. Recruiter seat bought by your employer), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.

Notices and Messages

You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you through our websites and/or using your contact information. If your contact information is out of date, you may miss out on important notices. You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you in the following ways: (1) within the Service, or (2) sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date.

Sharing

When you share information on our Services, others can see, copy and use that information. Our Services allow sharing of information such as your profile. Information and content that you share, like your profile, may be seen by other Members. Where we have made choices available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information about you (e.g., sharing your contact information only with other members with whom you have mutually agreed to be connected as potential job mates). Your profile will not be visible to visitors or public.

Your License to Job Pairing

You own all of the content (e.g. your profile) and personal information you provide to us, but you also grant us a non-exclusive license to it.

  • While we may edit and make format changes to your content (such as modifying the size, layout or file type or removing metadata), we will not modify the meaning of your expression.
  • You and Job Pairing agree that if content includes personal data, it is subject to our Privacy Policy.
  • You and Job Pairing agree that we may access, store, process and use any information and personal data that you provide in accordance with the terms of the Privacy Policy and your choices (e.g. only your mutually agreed connections can see your profile).
